The parts were made by special order of one of the military units. They will be used in the southern direction of the front

The gas storage operator of Ukraine (Ukrtransgaz) produced 126 transitional sleeves for gas stations from the steel of the Metinvest Group, which will be handed over to the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). This is stated in Metinvest.Media’s press release.

In addition, 300 mining cats, almost 130 turbo stoves, 160 tablet mini-stoves, and 60 flame extinguishers were also sent to the front.

“Transitional sleeves are made by special order of one of the parts. They will be used in the southern direction of the front, the rest of them – in Kharkiv region and Donbas. Finished products are not collected in warehouses, but are systematically sent to the military,” the message says.

Currently, Ukrtransgaz specialists are making more stoves, because in the cold weather there will be a great demand for them among the military. In total, it is planned to produce approximately 5,000 different steel items for the needs of our defenders.

“We continue cooperation with Ukrtransgaz for the sake of our defenders, because today the security and future of Ukraine depends on them. For its part, Metinvest fully supports initiatives aimed at helping the military. We are proud that our steel will make their lives more comfortable and their daily tasks easier. So with joint efforts, step by step, we are on our way to victory,” noted the CEO of Metinvest-SMC Igor Tonev.

As GMK Center reported earlier, Metinvest Group and Ukrainian gas storage operator Ukrtransgaz have organized a joint production of things necessary for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Thus, the steelmakers delivered more than 6,000 tons of steel products, of which more than 5,000 items will be produced at the facilities of Ukrtransgaz.
